Secretary Kerry Presents Award at USA Olympic Committee Team Awards Ceremony


Remarks
John Kerry
Secretary of State
McDonough Arena, Georgetown University
Washington, DC
September 28, 2016


SECRETARY KERRY: Good evening, everybody. Thank you, Matt, and thank you, Akbar (ph). As Secretary of State, I have been able to participate in some incredible moments, but I have to tell you leading the U.S. official delegation to Rio this summer was a really very special privilege, and I thank everybody for it.

The 2016 American Olympic Team was the most successful ever. (Cheers.) And better yet, more to come – and amid the extraordinary excellence, the performance of our women stood out above all, bringing home 61 medals and 27 gold. (Cheers.) In fact, if the women from Team USA had competed in Rio all alone, they would have won as many gold or medals as the men and women combined of any other country. (Cheers.)

So let’s celebrate the best of the best of these awesome athletes. Here are the finalists of the Female Olympic Athlete of the Games.

(Video is played.)

SECRETARY KERRY: Ladies and gentlemen, with Johnny (ph) here to help me, the winner is Katie Ledecky. (Cheers.)

Upton Rallies Support for Flint, Michigan Aid

The House Energy and Commerce Committee (R) posted a Press Release on September 28, 2016 | 5:44 pm - Original Item - Comments (View)
WASHINGTON, DC – Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI) today delivered remarks on the House floor in support of Rep. Dan Kildee’s (D-MI) amendment to the Water Resources Development Act providing aid to the city of Flint, Michigan.  [[{"fid":"1653","view_mode":"full","fields":{"format":"full","field_file_image_alt_text[und][0][value]":"","field_file_image_title_text[und][0][value]":""},"type":"media","link_text":null,"attributes":{"height":"303","width":"468","class":"media-element file-full"}}]] Watch Chairman Upton’s remarks HERE. (Remarks as prepared for delivery) Listen, we all know what happened in Flint was a tragic failure at every level.  Is it asking too much for the EPA to tell folks when lead levels are too high? I say no. This is why this very body passed the Kildee/Upton bill 416 to 2 that would force the EPA to alert families when lead levels are too high. Is it asking too much for us to tackle this problem in a fiscally responsible way? I say no. This is why we have a responsible solution in front of us. This provision will be fully paid for when conferenced with the Senate. Is it asking too much for our kids to have access to safe drinking water? I say no. I was just in Flint. We oughta be focused on working together to get this done. Folks in Flint have been asking these questions for more than two years. And you know what? They deserve answers, action, and results. It’s time to stand up and deliver. ###
